Woes of Launch: Maxis Announces Free Game Choices For SimCity Players

By on March 18, 2013

For those that picked up Sim City (and dealt with it’s launch difficulties), Maxis is offering a free PC game download from Origin for their mayors starting on March 20. Here’s the list:

  • Battlefield 3 (Standard Edition)
  • Bejeweled 3
  • Dead Space 3 (Standard Edition)
  • Mass Effect 3 (Standard Edition)
  • Medal of Honor Warfighter (Standard Edition)
  • Need For Speed Most Wanted (Standard Edition)
  • Plants vs. Zombies
  • SimCity 4 Deluxe Edition 

Now keep in mind you only get one game. While I would have preferred a few more choices, there are several games here I don’t have so I can’t really complain. That said, here’s a couple of details from the team.

Starting today, every player that has activated their copy of SimCity will receive an email that will give directions on how to redeem this offer, and you can also find more information on our FAQ. We’ll be opening up the redemption portal country-by-country so some of you may see it a little sooner than others.  The portal will be live worldwide for everyone to select their game by March 22. We don’t want any of you to miss out on your free game, so please note that you must register your copy of SimCity before March 25, 2013 at 11:59 PM PDT and you must claim your free game by March 30, 2013 at 11:59PM PDT.
